They have similar qualities and are super comfortable, but they have minimal isolation and lack the reverberant wood quality of the JVC.

Off they go then.


The JVC's are turning into a classic headphone.

I would agree with you although everyone here will have heard of the Sony MDR-R10, not everyone has heard of the JVC's.

Hi,.........................are the JVC's fully closed or 'closed' like the TH900?....................and do they leak sound out?

 

Thanks.

They're actually closed and don't really leak sound. Part of what I like about them is that they isolate fairly well.

I would believe more have heard the DX 1000. the R10 is kind of priced into unobtanium :)

There's a difference between 'heard' and heard-of.  By way of analogy, more people have heard of  Ferrari than have driven one.... 

 

That said, I had not listened to my DX1000s for quite some time, and somehow decided to give them a listen tonight.  Drving them with my Moon 430HAD via Jriver playing 16/44 flac and above. Guess I amy not be ordering any new phones any time soon.  Have fantasies about the Utopia, but--- $4K....  I am usually drawn to the warmer, darker side of neutral, but do like coherence and detail with my warmth....  Drums/percussion sound great with these- and acoustic jazz very realistic sounding, like being at the club sitting pretty close to the band.

 

My 1000s are in mint condition, but I am wondering whether to proactively duct-tape the little plastic bits that seem to be giving people problems.  Not going to sell these, but will try to thin the herd of some other cans.  These are  quickly moving into the number 1 spot for me.

So, since I can never leave well enough alone, has anybody rewired/cabled their 1000s?  Do you guys think it will kill their resale value to modify them with cables?  Has anyone tried them balanced vs. single-ended?  Is the bass emphasis partially a function of their stock cable?

 

Iquiring minds want to know.  And by 'enquiring minds', I mean ME!!!

Yes agree, completely closed and leak no sound. Those massive pads are very comfortable.

Mine are also in mint condition and have no issues with the mentioned parts cracking. I think it was a case of a bad batch or simply that certain people are a tad rough with their gear. Some people use one hand to remove their phones by sliding them of......big mistake. Use both hands and separate from your head and then remove.

Well I thought you actually meant listened to not knowing about the existance :)

 

As for running balanced for natural reasons it´s very hard to A-B but it didn´t have any negative effects I am sure :)
